Ah, I never realised there was a colour picker  :-P

The link to download V 0.84 seems to be down.

I didn't keep any copy newer than 0.7b. Sorry.
Anyway, I'm curious. Do versions form 0.81 to 0.83 work any better than this one? I thought they had even more severe bugs.

Well whenever I edit a model, besides resizing and repostioning, the game always crashes when it gets to that model.

hm, found a trick for keeping the field model at the same brightness as the other models and not crash your game. use a kimera such as V0.81 to make it and save it, that will make the model appear on the field, but it will be to dark, right? then open it with kimera V0.84 then just save it and it will be correctly shaded and won't crash the game. :)

my game crashed like, 14 times when i was making the guard scorpion 13. i guess it doesn't like you adding parts or taking a part apart to apply correct shading or something.

It doesn't like anything!
If I do anything besides repostion and resize it crashes.

hey, what sort of modding do you do? i'm curious as i don't see much of your modding here.
i myself like making monsters/bosses/summons as playable people as well as NPCs as well as bosses not to mention making 'outfit' mods. (EG: a MP outfit mod where all of the major people have the MP outfit, soldier outfit, sephiroth outfit mod, etc.)
i always figured it was Vista that was making my game crash as before when i made mods, thy work, then on vista they didn't, so i blamed vista for kimera's doing, lol.

did using a previous kimera work? or is that just as bad as new kimera for you?

Nop, Kimera's icon has "HRC" writen on one corner :-P This icon has been the same since 0.7.
If I remeber correctly the changes I did between versions, the current saving code is the same I used in 0.83 and thus it should have the same problems. I haven't seen any, but then again I can't say I've done very extensive testing.

Well, Murak. I do things ranging from Character swapping (EX: Tifa/Aeris, Barret/Dyne, Cloud/Zack) to making my own characters.
I also like making my own weapons.

As far as I know FF7 PC files and PSX has completly diferent formats. This program only supports files from the PC version. The models are stored in LGP files (char.lgp, battle.lgp, magic.lgp ...) and must be extracted using some kind LGP extractor (LGPTools, HighWind...) befor you can open them with kimera.

I see thanks.

Edit:  By any chance is there a editor for the psx version that can do something like making the weapon model part of the character model?   I'm trying to using a character model as an enimy and, well it displays fine in the game but the weapon is model is placed a large distance away from the character.
